Join the Climate Museum for this exciting discussion on the role of museums and the context of climate emergency. Interested? Read more about the event and be sure to sign up!
What is a museum’s purpose? How can museums and the cultural sector transform to meet the demands of the climate emergency? What broader questions are raised for the mobilization of public space and the relationship between institutions and activism?
Over the past five years, KUNST HAUS WIEN has embraced a clearly defined orientation in its programme policy, electing to address environmental and sustainability issues within the art discourse context, in its capacity as the first ‘Green Museum’. Indeed, KUNST HAUS WIEN is committed to the ‘Museums for Future’ movement in keeping with its understanding of the museum as a public institution and ‘generator of value’ called upon to convey a socio-political stance.
